The moment you said 283 I would have told you that you were full of shit.Well, you can’t make this up. I leave my shop in mokena, stop at the gas station off 355 and RT6 to get a pack of smokes before I head home.
I pull in to a bunch of kids (25-30 lol) with a blue C7Z, red 6th gen camaro, and more built gray Camaro. Sigh. I park by the pump, walk past minding my own.
as I walk back to my car, I get a few curious questions like what’s in it and what kind of car is it. I respond just a 81 Malibu with a 283 and some good heads….their suspicion is a roused but they are confident they have me covered. In my head I know im about to change someone’s life
So they went from throwing the red Camaro at me, to the gray one. Now, don’t get me wrong!, he sounds roudy as hell and I follow him onto 355. We go. Me in the middle lane, him in the right After they see what my car did to him, the blue C7Z pullsup on my left. I slow down and wait for his honks
He honks 3 times and we go from about a 35mph roll. After my shit stops spinning, I pull a half car-time to shift-now we’re equal, top of 3rd I pull half a car-shift to 4th- and now as he’s still next to me, I know I don’t have anymore nonsense to shift and I give the thumbs up as I walk tf away from this thing. By upper 4th, I have this thing clearly GAPPED.
It was amazing to feel their energy, because I know they had no clue what car I was driving, or what was in it but here’s this random car to pull into a gas station and gap their fastest car.
This is the shit I dream about.
Yes and yes. It will literally lift you outta the seat and feel like your eyeballs are going to come out. Not exaggerating but this is the best braking car I’ve ever driven. Stock front disc and rear drums.Are the rears on a proportioning valve?
Have you ever tried to panic stop in this thing yet?
Can a hydro boost setup be done if I have a rear disc conversion?Yes and yes. It will literally lift you outta the seat and feel like your eyeballs are going to come out. Not exaggerating but this is the best braking car I’ve ever driven. Stock front disc and rear drums.
I know, I'm just saying I really dont trust my brakes if I had to panic stop.And you don't want to actually lock up when you're panic stopping...
Locking up creates a uncontrollable element and also you speed up when your locked up.
That's why there are anti lock brakes.
I'd agree with this but Shawn is going to add boost...vacuum booster won't work without vacuum.Hydroboost is just the booster not the master cylinder so if yours is currently correct than it would be just fine.
I’m saying if his master cylinder is spec’d right than a hydroboost will work just fine with his disc setup…..I'd agree with this but Shawn is going to add boost...vacuum booster won't work without vacuum.
My C10 stops ridiculously well. Far better than any of my F-bodies or GTO did.
